Especially in these difficult financial times, plans can be shelved because of budget issues. Funding, wellness managers tell us, is something they struggle with.
Wellness and health promotion programs offered by hospitals, colleges and universities, community-based initiatives and other non-profit organizations have an option for securing the funds they need: grants and contracts from charitable foundations, company-sponsored foundations and certain government agencies.
That’s why Grant Funding for Wellness and Health Promotion Programs has been developed by the Wellness Management Information Center editorial team.
This 75-page report provides just a sampling of the broad range of programs and projects that have been successfully funded in recent years to help illustrate the possibilities available to wellness managers in search of need program funds.

The report provides an illustration of the kinds programs that can and are being funded to show the opportunities for funding wellness and health promotion programs in a variety of settings.
The report is ideal for use as a "starting point" on grants research to identify and pinpoint historical funder interest and continuing sources of funding for wellness and health promotion programs.
